Blink-182 Are Getting Us All Hyped For New Music
Working on a deluxe album of California, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker shared some insight as to what's coming, via an interview with Billboard.
From Mark: "It’s almost, it’s more than a whole other record, it’s a double album at this point and it’s more of an extension of what we did in the studio earlier. Some of the songs were songs that we did not put on the first album, but are great songs. And some are brand new that we just wrote last week, a lot of high-energy songs, punk rock, some more ballad-y songs, a little more electronic experimentation, it’s a good mix. It’s not a collection of throwaway songs, it’s like a whole other album."
From Travis: "We’re working on the deluxe album and I got in a conversation with [producer John] Feldmann this morning. I was like, “Dude, we got a problem, the deluxe album might even be better than California.” It’s a good problem to have, but, oh shit, it’s incredible. It’s kind of like a mind f--- because it should almost be a new album. But it just goes to show how natural and organic things are happening and how fun this process has been because it’s not hard to go write great songs and make fun music that we love creating and listening to. And the results are great. The deluxe album will be neck-and-neck with California. It’s in no way fillers."
There seems to be a flood of good music for the band, with Travis stating that they started writing "maybe a week and a half ago" and have 14 songs, saying that "It’s a good problem to have. I’m really excited about this deluxe edition. It’s gonna be incredible."
We can't wait to hear it!
